FALL 2016 SESSION: Monday, September 12 - Friday, November 18, 2016
Hello Everybody... it's time to make Music Together®!
The fall session will feature the Flutes Collection of songs, rhythm chants, tonal and rhythm patterns and instrumental play-alongs. We will be shaking, clapping and tapping to "Shake those 'Simmons Down," drumming to a Hopi Indian chant called "The Earth is Our Mother," swinging and floating our scarves to "Leaves Are Falling," and blowing bubbles to "I Had a Little Frog". Each song will be accompanied by a small or large motor movement or a percussion instrument. We will sing with high and low voices, tap, clap, jump and stomp to learn rhythm, and explore and make music with drums, bells, sticks, triangles, tambourines, maracas, egg shakers and more. Although the children will believe that Music Together is only play, they will be learning Basic Music Competence: to sing in tune and to find and keep and accurate rhythm.
As always, we will begin each class with the "Hello" and end with the "Goodbye" song. The children will learn that these songs signal the beginning and ending of class. We believe that it's important to greet and acknowledge the children, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and caregivers who will participate in class, and the children just love to hear their name sung in class. The class will continue for 45-minutes of live music making! Let's make Music Together!
